Nothing can compare with the freshness and incredible flavor of home grown fruits, herbs and vegetables. My family can hardly wait to harvest the first tomatoes from the garden to use in homemade tomato basil soup and a BLT sandwich!

Home gardens minimize your exposure to dangerous pesticides, chemicals and tainted produce. You have complete control over what goes in your food.

Not only will the food make you healthier, the exercise you get while working in a garden is such a benefit. Focus on all the calories you’ll burn while tilling, weeding, and harvesting your bounty. Finally, for me, digging in the dirt inspires peace, relaxation and a closeness with the earth.

A dying father has given his young daughter a memory to last a lifetime, offering to walk her, with white dress and flowers, down the aisle, because he won't be able to do it at a future wedding.

Decked out in gray suit and boutonniere, Jim Zetz, 62, who was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer last year, gave photographer Lindsey Villatoro some beautiful images to capture for his family to forever remember the day.

Villatoro's Love Song Photography, which does family and wedding portraits in Menifee, Calif., also specializes in photo sessions with people who are sick or have terminal illnesses, so they can create lasting memories with their loved ones.

While everyone else is complaining about the weather Calvin and Zatera Spencer experienced a March to remember.

It sounds like an April Fool's joke, but the Virginia couple actually did win big money in three different Virginia lottery games all within a single month.

They won $1 million in the March 12 Powerball drawing. Then on March 26, Mr. Spencer won $50,000 with 10 winning tickets in the Virginia Lottery’s Pick 4 game, for which he played the numbers 6-6-6-6.

The next day, he bought a Scratcher ticket for the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza, and won the $1 million prize. “Baby, we did it again!” the Norfolk man told her.

When they traveled to the Virginia office to claim

A young woman who had a serious eating disorder but reformed her life through yoga and is now helping others, received a series of four life-changing tips during her shift as a waitress.

A YouTube channel decided to "Prank it Forward" and give the Los Angeles worker the best shift ever.

First someone tipped her a thousand dollars. Next someone gave her free vouchers for a trip for two to Hawaii.

Believe it or not, the surpises grew even bigger than that.

Dr. Susan Krevoy, a clinical psychologist who is opening a center that treats eating disorders, posed as a customer in order to offer the volunteer yoga teacher a dream job. And, finally, a special surprise guest was flown in

15-year-old Lexi Di Benedetto and her parents spread out around the neighborhood on Saturday morning talking part in Our Lady of Peace School’s first “Love It Forward” event.

The teen met a homeless man and asked him if he'd like some lunch, and handed him a Del Taco bag and some water.

“Thank you, Lexi, thank you,” he said with a smile on his face. Pacheco said he’d been homeless for 15 years.

“But I don’t give up,” he said.

Lexi and her parents, Sherman Oaks residents Joe and Michelle DiBenedetto, were taking part in Our Lady of Peace School’s first “Love It Forward” event. The school and the affiliated Our Lady of Peace Parish brought together more than a hundred community mem

We can almost feel the sand between our toes after watching Duncan Lou Who, a two-legged boxer dog who stole our hearts, spend the day day at the beach in the video above.

Duncan's legs were removed due to a severe birth deformity, but nothing holds him back. The pluck this pooch displays running around during his first day at the beach will make you feel like you can do pretty much anything.

British artist Sue Austin continues to push forward in ways even top experts never thought possible.

Austin, who has been using a wheelchair for nearly two decades due to an extended illness, uses an innovative underwater wheelchair to create stunning visual art. She also hopes to challenge us to rethink the way we see people with disabilities.

With photos, videos and performance art pieces involving her unique underwater wheelchair named "Portal," Austin strives to redefine the way we relate to people in wheelchairs. She works to fight back against negative stigma, including such terms as "limited," "held back" and "immobilized," she said at a TED conference in 2012. She implores peop

It sounds like the stuff of science fiction: a mortally injured patient is put into suspended animation so doctors can buy time to close up his wounds and save his life.

But that seemingly improbable scenario is about to become a reality at five centers around the United States where doctors will try to stop the clock on patients who've sustained gunshot or knife wounds that were so severe their hearts stopped.

In the past, when efforts to restart the heart failed because so much blood had been lost, these patients would have been declared dead because there was no way to get enough oxygen to the brain before it was irreparably damaged.

Scientists now think that by quickly and drama

Tomorrow, March 27, marks 16 years since the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves use of the drug Viagra in 1998, an oral medication that treats impotence.

Sildenafil, the chemical name for Viagra, is an artificial compound that was originally synthesized and studied to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and angina pectoris (a form of cardiovascular disease). Chemists at the Pfizer pharmaceutical company found, however, that while the drug had little effect on angina, it could induce penile erections, typically within 30 to 60 minutes. Seeing the economic opportunity in such a biochemical effect, Pfizer decided to market the drug for impotence. Sildenafil was patented in 1996

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Electric clocks on walls in Anchorage shut down at 5:36 p.m. on March 27, 1964. Time stopped at the start of the '64 Great Alaska Earthquake, the second largest ever recorded at magnitude 9.2.

The ground shook for four to five minutes, roughly twice through "I Want to Hold Your Hand," the Beatles No. 1 song that year. With the U.S. and the USSR facing off in the Cold War, some thought the Russians had attacked. The quake produced a tsunami that wreaked havoc along the West Coast. Overall damage was estimated at $2.3 billion in 2014 dollars. The quake and tsunamis killed 131 people.

Though now a distant memory, it helped make experts better prepared for future q
